      Love, Love, LOVE this yarn. The price is right and the sheen is amazing! I've used this yarn for literally hundreds of projects. The only thing is that the website says the sett is 12-18, but it's really 20 if you're looking for a tight weave. So keep that in mind when planning your warp length!I always use a 10 dent reed with this yarn.

      I am a professional clothing weaver, and I use a lot of cotton in my weaving. With the decline of mill ends in the US I have turned to this product as a reliable source for 5/2 cotton in certain colors - particularly black.
      Although I love the feel and the sheen of this yarn, at times I have gotten cones that are riddled with snags, knots, and uneven twists. It doesn't happen too often, but when it does it is a real pain - especially if I am measuring out warp! For the price I could wish there was a bit more quality control...... then I would rate this yarn at four or maybe five stars.

          Used as both warp and weft for an inkle band, the band has a very dressy look--nice gloss, bright pattern definition, and not-too-coarse texture.

          The thinner yarns do tend to tangle when dressing a loom. Otherwise, I like them a lot.

                        I had never seen this 5/2 before. I am I'm a hand knitter. I wanted to see if I could compare it to a knitting weight cotton. Hoping for sport or fingering weight. It is more like crochet bedspread cotton. Very pretty on the cone. Haven't tried it yet.

                          I purchased his yarn on sale and was impressed with the quality I recieved! It is dyed a TRUE black and the luster is sensuious. I use this type of yarn a lot and my customers love the fact they can have a scarf that won't shed on shed lots of lint on their wool coats and is a natural fiber!
